from the wheel of time series

"the wheel of time turns, and ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. legend fades into myth and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth comes again."

Even when mind and strength had gone, gratitude and a mutual tenderness still lived on in the heart of man

i have to many to remember im agraid. my favourite quote (more like message) comes from hearts in atlantis (book 2, the real hearts in atlantis)

it is actually represented by symbols)

love (arrowed heart) + peace (the symbol we all know so well) = information (that one is just the word)

its a very powerful book. not at all like stephen kings other work.

'Political and religious differences and arguments have no place in a mountaineering team.' This quote is not verbatim but it does reflect the state of mind required to make some great achievements and is drawn from High Conquest by James Ramsey Ullman.

Attempting to organise aetheists/agnostics would be like trying to herd cats.

From The God Delusion by Dawkins. The quote is attributed to someone else.

"And remember also that many places you would like to see are just off the map and many things you want to know are just out of sight or a little beyond your reach. But someday you'll reach them all, for what you learn today, for no reason at all, will help you discover all the wonderful secrets of tomorrow."

Ah! The Phantom Tollbooth. Thank you for reminding me. I only know it from the animated film and was thrilled with it. One of the very fewe animations from that era that isn't a Disney. It is virtually unknown here.
